About the Book:
Lebowitz turns her trademark caustic wit to the vicissitudes of life - from children ('rarely in the position to lend one a truly interesting sum of money') to landlords ('it is the solemn duty of every landlord to maintain an adequate supply of roaches'). And her attitude to work is the perfect antidote to our exhausting culture of self-betterment ('3.40pm. I consider getting out of bed. I reject the notion as being unduly vigorous. I read and smoke a bit more').
About the Author:
Arriving in New York over fifty years ago, Fran Lebowitz made her name as a columnist on Andy Warhol's Interview magazine, before publishing two bestselling volumes of essays, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, which are collected in The Fran Lebowitz Reader. She is one of America's most insightful social commentators, a sought-after public speaker, style icon, wit and flaneur. Fran Lebowitz has collaborated with Martin Scorsese on two documentaries: the film Public Speaking in 2010, and the limited series, Pretend It's a City in 2021. Lebowitz lives in New York City, as she does not believe that she would be allowed to live anywhere else.
